Zaap Thai prepare to open first Sheffield restaurant on Ecclesall Road
Authentic Thai street food group, Zaap Thai, have revealed plans to open their first Sheffield restaurant on Ecclesall Road.
The popular street food chain, which already boasts five restaurants in the North of England, is hoping to be open by late spring, early summer in the former home of Mud Crab Diner, and most recently Bloc Restaurant.
Spokesperson for the group, Greg Callaghan, told Exposed: “We’ve been looking for a location in Sheffield for a number of years. It’s been at the top of our priority list, and we’ve finally found a fantastic site on Ecclesall Road after years of searching.
“Sheffield is a fantastic city with a rich history and diverse population, and we believe a great fit for ZAAP.”
We’re told the site will be ‘unrecognisable’, holding around 120 covers and featuring tuk tuk seating booths, neon lighting, Thai-inspired graffiti, a large bar, and an open kitchen lined with Thai hawker carts.
The menu will be full of Thai street food classics such as Som Tum, Pad Ga Prao and of course Pad Thai. There’ll also be a range of Thai curries, noodle soups, sharing platters, stir-fries and some more unique Thai dishes that you might not have heard of before.
They will also offer Thai-themed cocktails, Thai beers, a large range of non-alcoholic drinks and their signature Bubble Teas.
Greg added: “We can’t wait to introduce Zaap to the people of Sheffield. Watch this space!”
ZAAP Sheffield will be the sixth Zaap Thai, following in the footsteps of restaurants in Leeds, Nottingham, Newcastle, York, and most recently the Leeds suburb of Headingley. For more info on progress at the Sheffield site, go chuck them a like on socials.
